Complacency, a result of politicization

Some in Minnesota feel Americans are getting complacent in the wake of the fifth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Complacency has set in because, in the months immediately following the attacks of 9-11, it was staged by some as an event for political gain. In short, some Americans feel that the constant mentioning of September 11th by Bush in his speeches is an old trick and, as Americans, we want to see action taken. Americans thrive on instant results and expecting that from our bureaucratic political system is simply setting yourself up for disappointment but we still demand action and accomplishment.
